The hands are one of the most sensitive parts of the body and one of the first to lose heat when the temperature drops. Keep them protected in all conditions with the Hurricane Waterproof mittens. 100% waterproof, they fit well with the Hurricane rain jacket in your essential equipment package if you are not sure which way the weather is heading. Lightweight and breathable, they release moisture so that hands do not sweat uncomfortably. An elastic band around the wrist prevents rain from working inside. With the separate thumb you can grasp poles while the combined fingers hold body heat to keep cold away. The mittens can also be worn over a pair of lighter finger gloves for extra warmth. Good to know: the mitts meet the requirements of ultra trail mandatory equipment lists.
